- Adaptation Displacement: As with The Little Colonel, Susannah of the Mounties is not only adapted from a now obscure book, but from the first entry of a now obscure book series. The book's sequels are Susannah of the Yukon, Susannah at Boarding School, and Susannah Rides Again.
- Angst? What Angst?: Sue gets over the death of her family really quickly.
- Fair for Its Day: Perhaps. The Indians are portrayed very stereotypically, but the movie is ultimately about two racial communities learning to live in peace.
- Values Dissonance: In addition to the racism alluded to above, the fact that no one seems to think there's anything wrong with a little girl smoking the Peace Pipe.
